  Network Security And Reliability
Public and private networks are interconnected and use the facilities of each other to create a transparent "network of networks." As opposed to the past when the long-distance network was the sole responsibility and was under the control of ATandT, today's "network-of-networks" is a decentralized network in terms of control and overall responsibility.
Network failures indeed can have catastrophic results, and such failures must be prevented and minimized through adequate attention to the security of the network and the individual networks that comprise today's "network of networks." With competition, the reliability of tomorrow's network is at greater risk, according to a report of the National Research Council (1989).
The "network of networks" thus will be interconnected not only in terms of the transmission and switching of customer signals but also in terms of the signals that control the overall operation of the networks.

 Access Network Planning and Technologies
Telecommunications today is perhaps the fastest evolving field of study.
It therefore becomes imperative for the access network planner to be familiar with both traditional and new technologies, structures and methods as their plans would have a profound long term impact on how the network shapes up and meets the desired objectives..
A telecommunications network is therefore a system which can provide these services to a number of end users.

 Access Network Architectural Issues for Future Telecommunication Networks
An overview of the access network is given, and the interfaces between the access network and other portions of the telecommunications network such as the user—network interface (UNI), service node interface (SNI), and telecommunication management (Q3) interface are described.
The access network is defined as a network entity providing access capabilities for various service applications (a wide variety of types of user terminals) to access various service providers (specific service nodes) located at the edges of the core networks.
This article describes access network architectural aspects for future telecommunications networks, and presents some key topics which are being studied in SG 13 during the current study period of ITU-T (1997—2000) and beyond.

 Introduction to Telecommunication Networks   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
A basic understanding of telecommunication concepts and terminologies is becoming increasingly important these days, even to hold an intelligent conversation, especially with the younger generation.
But students in management, telecommunications, public administration and education have begun to recognize that they need to understand these technologies to function successfully as managers, educators and administrators.
Hence, the purpose of this book is to explain network concepts as far as possible in a non-technical language to students of communication, management, public administration and education.

Public telecommunications network - the infrastructure meant for the general use of physical persons and legal entities for the transmission of a signal between two or more defined network terminating points by utilizing cables, radio waves and optical transmission systems or any other electromagnetic process.
The use of satellite communication equipment by the public telecommunication network shall be coordinated with international satellite organizations by the Ministry of Transport.
Physical persons and legal entities shall have the right to set up private telecommunication networks, which may only be used by these physical persons and legal entities for their own needs, and so long as they respect the rights of the telecommunication organization.

Telecommunications networks have grown rapidly in recent years, especially in countries with lower penetration rates, such as Poland, Mexico and Hungary.
Density of wireless access channels is generally relatively higher in countries where growth rates in telecommunication networks are quite high, such as Italy, Portugal and Austria.
To appreciate overall telecommunication penetration rates across the OECD area, it is also increasingly necessary to take into account the development of mobile communication networks and of "broadband" Internet access.

Interconnection of telecommunication networks is the linking of the physical and logical resources of two or more telecommunication operators for the exchange of information via different transmission media so that the users of one operator may communicate with those of another.
Telecommunication technology has advanced to such a point it is now possible for such services to converge, for which network integration is required, that is, the physical and logical merging of all telecommunication networks into a single network.
Until operators have technologies that provide convergent network services (all services via a single technology), service convergence must be ensured by means of interconnection so that multiple services are available to users over the same network.

 Research Interests
It is generally accepted that the problem of network congestion control remains a critical issue and a high priority, especially given the growing size, increasing demand for new services with varying quality of service characteristics, and higher speed (bandwidth) demanded from an increasingly integrated services network.
However, performance problems were shown, due to the ad-hoc design approach and the subsequent difficulty of tuning the parameters (which are dependant on network conditions and are sensitive to number of active flows) and its reliance on the existing TCP congestion control framework.
The derived controller suffers the disadvantage that it is unable to maintain its performances as the network state changes (moves away from the assumed operating point), as for example when the number of TCP flows increases.

 ch11   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Telecommunication Networks can be mainly classified into two groups based on the criteria of who has made the decision of which nodes are not going to receive the transmitted information.
In ATM networks, the interface between the network user (either an end-node or a gateway to another network) and the network it is called UNI (User-Network Interface).
Basically, network traffic control in ATM networks is a preventive approach: it avoids congestion states whose immediate effects are excessive cell dropping and unacceptable end-to-end delays.

 Telecommunication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Telecommunication is the transmission of signals over a distance for the purpose of communication.
Today, telecommunication is widespread and devices that assist the process, such as the television, radio and telephone, are common in many parts of the world.
Telecommunication over a phone line is called point-to-point communication because it is between one transmitter and one receiver, telecommunication through radio broadcasts is called broadcast communication because it is between one powerful transmitter and numerous receivers.

Discrete event simulation is a well established technique for performance analysis of telecommunication networks which are complex and distributed systems involving time varying parameters, inherent nonlinearities and uncertainties.
It provides a practical methodology for understanding network system behaviour that is either too complex for mathematical analysis, and/or too expensive to investigate by measurements or prototyping on real network equipment.

 Broadband Networks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A multi-media network has to support a broad range of bit-rates demanded by connections, not only because there are many communication media, but also because a communication medium may be encoded by algorithms with different bit-rates.
Television networks using the radio or the cable medium are largely broadcast networks with minimum switching facilities [2][3].
While there are multiple network structures capable of supporting broadband services, an ever increasing percentage of broadband and MSO providers are opting for fiber optic network structures to support both present and future bandwidth requirements.
